it is not surprising, in ihe eyes of a buyer, he will be getting the app store (features of ios devices) at the cost of a Symbian phone...
so most of them will choose android!!!!!!!!!!
Anonymous, 04 Dec 2012Of course 9 out of 10 smartphone is Android because Android is MADE IN USA. the most advanced ... moreJust to.let u know , Android is linux based a european(finnish op system ), so it's not entirely USA.
know your facts
rogerpjr, 03 Dec 2012HEY!!! Let's stay on point here..... Do the math... 90% of 1.1 billion.... Android ROCKS THE W... moremany people do the same mistake. There are 1.1 billion "cellphones" in China... and 90% of the "smartphones" are running Android.. smartphone is a cellphone, yes, but a cellphone is not always a smartphone... so we would need the number of smartphones in China to calculate the number of android ones
This news will just make Apple more angrier toward Android phones!
There are gonna be many lawsuit in future
Android Runs on Different Hardware like Samsung, LG, HTC, Sony, MoTorola and other Brands, Low phones and High end smartphones. Apple ios only Runs on Iphone Hardware that's why runs so smooth and fast. But Android is Transformer. LOV ANDROID...

Of course 9 out of 10 smartphone is Android because Android is MADE IN USA. the most advanced technlogy made by USA.
thanks to google , android & china phone company without them we cannot use smartphone with high spec in low price :)
rogerpjr, 03 Dec 2012HEY!!! Let's stay on point here..... Do the math... 90% of 1.1 billion.... Android ROCKS THE W... moreSo let me get this right, you are telling me that '990+ MILLION' people bought an Android device in Q3 2012 ... No.
I think you should go back to Primary School and learn to read mate.
What I always find interesting is that china is such a large smartphone market and they all love great droid phones yet they export so many crappy knockoffs lol
I'm suprised, considering how bad the government there is treating Google.
HEY!!! Let's stay on point here..... Do the math... 90% of 1.1 billion.... Android ROCKS THE WORLD with 990+ MILLION users.... IN CHINA ALONE!! Just a little JUSTICE here. Apple stole XEROX' IP,(thought they) got away with it. Only to be done in by the people of the world. The world market.. More let's add up the test of the Nations off the world..... Android, despite Apple, and Microsoft collaborating together and teaming up against Android, ROCKS...... By the way, justice is complete re: Apple, when Apple pays XEROX the billions that by now any fair court will assess.
Interesting stats. Yes, I assume a lot of these android devices (most) are Go-phone/MetroPCS/prepaid quality devices. Much less pricey compared to the midrange and flagship devices we in Europe, UK and North America use more prominently.
Why do you think Nokia is trying to push Asha and make inexpensive WP devices?
I'd like to see the Version stats on those androids.My money is on a ton of Froyo and lightweight Gingerbread.
AnonD-83178, 03 Dec 2012China is the home of dual sim, lots of people have more than one active sim, thats why it seem... moreIn my small country the number of active sim cards is twice the number of population, because each of the 4 carriers offers cheap prices toward itself and very expensive toward others, you have to keep many sims, i actually have 5 in 3 phones:)
And 90% of them are Chinese brands, domestic products that if could sell outside China would cause a total bankruptcy of Samsung, Apple, etc.
This article speaks about the rising Smartphone sales in china. Takes into account the smartphone o/s , so it would be ios/android/bb/symbian/bada/meego/wp etc etc..
Why do you need the brand for the above comparision? at the end its the o/s which takes the share , this article is not to list the brand wise sales anyway.
Please don't add up your disappointment towards GSM being biased.
for the record the article is published, here you go...
